These volunteers are from the pumpkins I had on my front porch for Halloween that my 4 year old grandson Jaylen stepped on.
I was thinking how it was really early to be forming fruit on pumpkin vines, then I noticed where you are located,, DUH! The volunteer cucurbits I'm dealing with are Jack-B-Little pumpkins and small decorative gourds. The nasty buggers are taking over quite a patch of ground. I thought about dumping then, en masse, over the bank last fall, now I wish I had. Worst thing is that there are way more seeds sprouting where I planted cantalopes than there were seeds planted. I'll have to wait until the second leaves form so I can the good from the bad. The masses of them that are popping up elsewhere are about to meet the kiss of death.
